I want to tell you something!

But I can't. I've been playing a lot of one of my mystery betas lately. A lot more than I expected I would. It's safe to say I'm loving the game, for a multitude of reasons. It's so good, I almost don't care that it's beta and nothing I do in it will be there in the next few months. I often can't find bugs. It's likely caused by the fact that I'm having too much fun playing, which to me is a good sign that the game is almost ready to go.

It was this way for me with LotRO, too. I just wished I would have played into the higher levels with that one, to make sure I wouldn't hit the wall I have in it. So guess what I'm doing in this beta? Just that. I'm playing a character I normally don't think I would, because the last thing I want to do is see it all with the one I do plan to play on release. But oddly, I'm loving this character. I thought I'd hate it. But I'm starting to think you can't really go wrong with your choice of character in this game.

Ugh... this is all propbably very vague to you guys, since I can't go into specifics or name the game even. But I will be divulging more info as soon as I am allowed. Let's just put it this way. It has me putting down real, released versions of games, just for the chance to play the beta. That's a good sign, if you ask me.

More posting to come later, if something strikes me.

Speak no more of mystery betas! (at least the good ones ;) )

I'm so happy that you're so happy in the your mystery beta. Really. Now stop being a little tease and give us some details man!

Would your toon more likely say either "Argh", or "Beam me up"?

I'd love to go into great detail for my adventures with this one, but I can't just yet. I imagine the NDA will be dropping soon though. It can't be that far off.

My character wouldn't say either of those things. He's more likely to say, "If you have the coin, I've got the time."

(Again, intentionally vague.)

You know my e-mail address ;) We can talk about *that other beta we're in* yeah... that.

Heather said...

*wistful sigh* can't wait to hear more once the NDA's up!

It's just a good sign that you're having that much fun in a beta. Whichever game it is, that bodes well for all of us. Is it a game coming out in 07? :)

did the NPC in this mystery MMP calls you matey ?

Bildo said...

It's "supposed to" come out in 2007. No firm release date yet.

I have been enjoying a few of the betas floating around as well, and whether or not we play them on live servers after release, the general quality of the 'rookie class of MMOs' is really refreshing.

We have variety, polish, depth and fun... finally.
